The Human Aspect of Guro Maria

I felt people could see right through me and my biggest fear was that they saw how I was really doing. See how my excitement to move out and start my higher education quickly crumbled and was replaced with self-doubt, emotional overeating, and depression. The shame kept me silent and the distance between my inner feelings and the mask I put on increased by the day. Eventually, my excitement for my future was lost and I didn’t see much hope for the future.
